important credentials while opening your account
such as name, location, etc. After completing
this process, it generally takes 48 hours for
Google approval.

removes Unrated apps from the store. For app

audience, which will enhance your app engagement
rates eventually. Step 7 Set Up App Pricing
Distribution Now, you have to assign the cost of
your application. However, before filling out all
the details, you have to properly determine the
monetization strategy of your application. Once
you understand how your app will help you make
money, you can start setting up your application
as paid or free. If you would like to make your
app free, you cant change your decision. This is
because Google never allows you to convert free
applications into paid versions. Although, the
app price can easily be altered.

    Distribution tab first next, decide whether
    your application will be offered as a paid or
    free version. Then you can select the region
    where you would like to release your app. In

    years), click Yes for Primary Child-Detected.
